The New York Times Travel Show 2015

The New York Times Travel hosted the largest trade and travel show in North America.  Jacob Javits Center was the home of over 500 exhibitors and over 150 countries represented. I had the privilege of attending for the first time. Needless to say I was elated when I arrived and checked in to receive my press pass. One of the very first things I noticed was the diversity within the crowd. There were young children, couples and seniors all with at least one thing in common…TRAVEL!




I grabbed the official guide and a made a note of a few countries that I desired more information about. I visited the booths for Belize, South Africa, Thailand and Morocco and spoke with several travel experts for insider advice. I was really curious about Cuba and exploring Havana. Each destination had something unique to offer and I was filled with inspiration to make 2015 an outstanding year of travel.

One of the best things that I loved about The NY Times Show was connecting with fellow travelers. I listened as they shares their travel stories and adventures. Many travelers are also blog and I soaked up a wealth of knowledge on how to bring you more Passport 2 Pretty. I am truly inspired  by these ladies and their passion for living their dreams.
